STAR SANDWICH COOKIES

 

  • Cooking Time: 10 minutes/batch
  • Servings: 30 servings
  • Preparation Time: 30 min. + chilling

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Sugar
  • FILLING:
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 to 8 teaspoons heavy whipping cream
  • Liquid or paste food coloring, optional

Directions

  • In a large bowl, beat the butter, flour and cream. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2 in. star cookie cutter. Sprinkle tops of cookies with sugar; place on ungreased baking sheets.
  • Prick each cookie 3-4 times with a fork. Bake at 375° for 7-9 minutes or until set. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  • For filling, combine the butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla and enough cream to achieve desired spreading consistency. Tint with food coloring if desired.
  • Carefully spread filling on the bottom of half of the cookies; top with remaining cookies.

Notes

I baked these treats for a church tea. The night before, I gave a sample to the folks setting up. They liked the cookies so much, they set aside a few to ensure they'd get some the next day!
